 Trigger event with REPLACE and trigger ADD

I was wondering if anyone has run into the following:

We were running some tests with event triggering that housed date symbols as part of the procedure. After a few runs, we realized that the the date symbols were not resolving properly to the current date and were actually moving forward in time every time the event triggered.

We concluded that since the event was being triggered with default REPLACE, the next scheduled time kept moving up in, and so was affecting the symbols within the event procedure.

Does any one know if it is possible to reset the sched for an event without deleting and redefining it? 

Additional testing showed it is only happening to the event that was being used for testing. We did another test and added symbols that should resolve for past dates but the same effect occurred. 

Anyways, thanks in advance!

We ran into this issue over a year ago.  From memory I think we needed to delete and redefine the events.  We also change the default to be ADD so all future events would not have this issue.

I can have a dig around to confirm if that would help.

Hi Wilfredo,

You can just remove the STARTING on SCHED statement in the event definition, then save it. ESP will adjust to the proper date for next run.

We suggest that you set following in ESPPARM with "ADD" to avoid similar problems:

Hope this helps,
